Guadalupe Mountains National Park
Lonely Planet review for Guadalupe Mountains National Park
We won’t go so far as to call it Texas’ best-kept secret, but the fact is that a lot of Texans aren’t even aware of the Guadalupe Mountains National Park. It’s just this side of the Texas–New Mexico state line and a long drive from practically everywhere in the state. Despite its low profile, it is a Texas high spot, both literally and figuratively. At 8749ft, Guadalupe Peak is the highest point in the Lone Star State. The fall foliage in McKittrick Canyon is the best in west Texas, and more than half the park is a federally designated wilderness area.
